Delighting Fries Lovers as F&B outlets serves up tasty U.S. Fries recipes
Imported potatoes for U.S. Fries Fiesta 2019
The Potatoes USA has kicked off its U.S. Fries Fiesta campaign in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah from 15 June to 30 July 2019.
According to Potatoes USA’s country rep, Eddie Saw, “We are bringing the U.S. Fries Fiesta for the first time to Kota Kinabalu this year as there are many creative and fantastic chefs there that have managed to combine the quality imported products like U.S. fries together with the wide range of local ingredients from Sabah to produce exciting dishes for the locals and tourists.
“A promotion such as this will help to bring out another side to the culinary range that Kota Kinabalu has to offer. We’d like to highlight to the growing pool of food enthusiasts in East and West Malaysia, especially lovers of fries, that there are great food & beverage outlets that they should try,” said Eddie.
With the sound of our traditional gong sound for 3 times, Fries Fiesta has officially launched in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.

Altogether, 9 outlets are participating in the U.S Fries Fiesta campaign, all serving up unique and tantalizing dishes using U.S. fries varieties.
Arguably an unprecedented campaign dedicated to fries, the campaign is two-pronged in objectives. First, it’s to stimulate excitement amongst the trade to be as creative as they can with creating various culinary presentations with U.S. fries, exciting their customers, especially frozen potato lovers.
The public, in turn, who visit and dine at these participating restaurants, has a unique opportunity to relish different U.S. fries served with a scrumptious repertoire of dishes.
U.S. fries promise many advantages including better flavour, taste, and texture and distinctly enhanced the dishes – making them out of the ordinary fries fare they are used to.
Malaysians love their fries and know how to appreciate good fries. Malaysia is one of the 6th largest export markets for U.S. frozen potatoes in Asia. “The U.S. Fries Fiesta will showcase various exciting dishes made with U.S. fries. One of the highlights of this Fiesta is that it provides an opportunity for the public to acquaint themselves to the different U.S. fry varieties. Many of these outlets are offering new cuts of U.S. fries for the first time.
“We want to create the ultimate gastronomic satisfaction for Malaysian consumers and provide them the opportunity to savour the “best fries served with tasty dishes” via the U.S. Fries Fiesta in Kota Kinabalu,” said Eddie.
There will also be a Facebook contest where the public can win dining vouchers on a weekly basis with a grand prize of an Ipad at the end of contest. All they need to do is to order one US Fries Fiesta dish from one of the participating outlets and post a creative caption and photo of the U.S Potatoes dish with #MYPotatoesUSA
Some of the reasons why U.S. produces the best fries are the ideal growing temperatures, rich soil, state-of-the-art processing facilities and generations of expertise. U.S. potatoes destined for processing must contain high “solids” and low sugar content, which are important characteristics for achieving a finished product with desirable appearance, taste and texture.
U.S. potato growers offer processors high-quality potatoes from a plentiful year-round supply. The U.S. industry standards are demanding and must meet all Food and Drug Administration and USDA specifications, enabling U.S. processors to create top-quality and safe frozen potato products.
Potatoes are not just good to eat but good for health. It is a perfect food for all ages and cultures, a weaning food for babies, a great accompaniment and ingredient in all types of cuisine be it baked, roasted, braised, pan-fried or mashed.
